Oh the thinks you can think
After all these years, seeing Seuss on a page, did you ever imagine you'd be in it, on stage? Now you're here, there is no telling what may ensue. No, there is no telling what. But I'll give you a clue… Your chance has arrived to be part of bringing your favourite Dr. Seuss characters to life on stage in Northern Light Theatre Company's production of 'Seussical', The Musical .
Auditions for 'Seussical' are being held on Wednesday 20 June from 7pm at Parks Theatre for performers interested in joining the production for a season running 12-20 October at the Shedley Theatre, with roles suitable for ages approximately 8-50. Everything you need to audition can be found here on the Northern Light Theatre Company website to book your audition spot, including a synopsis of the story, all the key dates and even music to practice your audition piece with!
Seussical' is based on Horton Hears A Who and Horton Hatches The Egg, but it isn't just a few stories set to music: it's a full-length book musical that weaves together more than 15 of Dr Seuss' most beloved books and characters. The messages at the heart of the books are integrated throughout the story—the power of helping a friend, of not giving up, of keeping a promise, of valuing the dignity of others, and a pure belief in the power of imagination. The Cat in the Hat guides the show, singing and dancing through The Jungle of Nool with familiar Dr. Seuss characters Horton the elephant, JoJo and the Whos, General Ghengis Khan Schmitz, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie La Bird, The Sour Kangaroo and Yertle the Turtle to name a few. 'Seussical' is a fun romp with lessons and laughter for all ages.
